UNDOING RACISM WORKSHOP:
Anti-Racism Training for Human Service Practitioners and Educators
Are You Challenged by How to Deal with Race Issues in Your Practice, Institution or in the Classroom?
Are You Concerned about the Impact of Racism in our City and State?
We invite you to be part of our movement to advance institutional change for racial equity. Workshop participants will engage in a comprehensive exploration of how racism shapes American institutions, often without our conscious understanding that it is doing so. Applicants should be individuals in positions to take knowledge gained in the workshop back to their colleagues, institutions and wider communities. The goal is to foster local work groups that will continue the conversation and work toward institutional change.
These unique 2 1/2 day workshops are offered by The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, a national, multiracial, anti-racist network from New Orleans dedicated to ending racism and other forms of institutional oppression. Now in its 25th year, the Institute has provided training, consultation, and leadership development to more than 110,000 people in organizations nationally and internationally.
Graduates of the workshop say that the workshop helps them deal with both cultural competence and racial dynamics in the classroom and in practice.
The People's Institute analysis moves beyond a focus on the symptoms of racism to an understanding of what it is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists and how it can be undone. The workshop stresses learning from history, developing leadership, maintaining accountability to communities of color, creating networks, undoing internalized oppression, and understanding the role of organizational gatekeeping in perpetuating racism.
